PROMOTER Frank Warren promised an immediate rematch after Liam Smith claimed a controversial victory over Liam Williams in their domestic super-welterweight clash at the Manchester Arena.

Welshman Williams looked to be holding a commanding lead when he was withdrawn at the start of the 10th round with his right eye clamped shut after an apparent head clash.

But referee Terry O’Connor did not notice the incident and as such instead of going to the scorecards, Smith was handed the victory due to his opponent’s retirement.
